METALS SUMMER SESSION 4
JULY 2–14, 2023
Set and Framed
This workshop will cover simple settings for stones or objects and move toward nontraditional prong, frame, and tension settings. We’ll make our own bezel wire and learn how to modify and customize it, and we’ll address when and why a prong setting might be a better solution. This workshop will be ideal for creating settings for odd or difficult stones or objects. We’ll cover various metalsmithing techniques used for stone setting. All levels. Upper metals studio.
